West Side Story Ghent 2015

West Side Story in Ghent, Belgium

In September 2015 I travelled to Ghent to sing the role of Action in a staged production of West Side Story.

You can see the huge outdoor stage on the right of the photo, as well as the “catwalk” that we used for the songs. About 10,000 people came to watch on the streets of Ghent, and at the end there was a spectacular firework display. A memorable weekend!
